If I tribute a monster equipped with Crystal Release, or sometimes when it gets destroyed by an opponent's card effect, Crystal Release's effect of putting a CB in my backrow doesn't happen. I get a message that says "missed the timing". But all the card says is when the card is moved from the field to the graveyard, so it should still happen right?
So for example, if you Tributed a monster equipped with Crystal Release to Tribute Summon a Level 5/6 monster, the last thing to happen is the Level 5/6 monster being Tribute Summoned, as a result, Crystal Release misses the timing.
Sure it might be hard to overcome a Pegasus/Tiger equipped with this card, but it's only hard if you're thinking about battle only. Good players also think about effect - you can use Super Rush Headlong to destroy the CB, or take control of the CB using E-Con and Tribute it for something else.
